Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds


Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds | The Beatles

Although commonly believed to be about an LSD trip, the song was inspired by a picture Julian Lennon painted of Lucy O’Donnell (1963-2009), the girl who sat next to him in nursery school. “I swear to God or swear to Mao or to anybody you like,” John said. “I had no idea it spelled LSD.” Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Lennon came up with the image of “kaleidoscope eyes” and McCartney with “newspaper taxis” and “cellophane flowers”.

While writing the song, Lennon spent most of his days alone at his Weybridge mansion, feeling depressed in a collapsing marriage and expirementing with drugs. As he explained in 1980, “There was also the image of the female who would someday come save me- a girl with kaleidoscope eyes who would come out of the sky. It turned out to be Yoko. So maybe it should be Yoko in the Sky with Diamonds.”

We’d stay overnight and we’d all sit in armchairs and we’d put all the lights out and being teenage pubescent boys, we’d all wank. What we used to do, someone would say ‘Brigitte Bardot’ ‘Oooh!’ That would keep everyone on par, then somebody, probably John, would say ‘Winston Churchill’ ‘Oh, no’ and it would completely ruin everyone’s concentration. — Paul McCartney
